Pakistan is a land full of culture and spice. We are known for our amazing cuisine and each city has its own special dishes to offer. However, we Pakistanis are quite creative ourselves when it comes to satisfying our cravings. Following are 5 ajeeb
combinations that might sound weird to a lot of people but they come with their own charm and maza
Don't knock it, unless you've tried it!
1- Naan and Coke
Yes, you read it right. Some of us take the garam garam
naan fresh out of a tandoor and dip it into a chilled glass of coke. The result is a mushy and soft piece of heaven that melts in your mouth as soon as you eat it.
2- Nutella and Marie Biscuit
Haven't heard of this combo before? Well, now you have. Take a biscuit and dip it into Nutella. Take it out with chocolate dripping all over it and pop it into your mouth. This is perfect for people with a sweet tooth and those tough times where you need some sugar therapy to get you going!
3- Chips and Soup
You know those chicken corn
and hot and sour
soup styrofoam cups that you can get on the streets in winter? They go just perfect with chips. Whether they be packet super crisps or the bakery potato chips- they play the role of crackers quite nicely. You coat a chip with the soup and eat it whole!
